Dateline: France

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Not much going on here, but Kari persuaded me to post some photos of our recent exploits. By way of explanation I should note some recent events. Our friends Fabien and Marie, recently engaged, dropped by for a visit. We went to Flavigny for lunch at a cool little restaurant run by local farmers’ wives. They make traditional dishes and serve it cafeteria style to tourists and locals alike who queue up out the door. Inna’s husband Thierry was kind enough to teach Laurens and me the rudiments of stonecutting. After seeing his website, I told him that I was curious about the process of stonecutting and that my dream was to be able to some day make a stone sink. Let’s just say that stonecutting is HARD and one day does not a master make. Other than those two things, life has been pastoral, slightly lethargic and ultimately regenerative.

Talking about france is all well and good, but don’t you want to see good old tee-vee? Here’s a couple of videos from around the farm house. I have to warn you that it is 4pm and being seriously jetlagged we just woke up.
